NUXE Micellar Cleansing Water with Rose Petals
If I’m bwing honest I just amazon searched and found and reasonably priced bottle and it turned out well. It’s cery calming to my skin and gentle.
When I can’t get that I use Caudelie. It’s not a rose cleansing water buit is a cleansing water and I like it a lot as well.

I’ve just started a regular facial routine! I’m doing dermasweep every 2 weeks through the fall then starting a peel regimine (which I have done in the past and has worked wonders for my skin)
I’ve been using come vitamin c products (spcifically Lira) to help with my micropigmentation and skin eveness, and so far it has been great. Looking forward to see the results in the next few months!

I’ve worked in skin care for the last ten years.
Two things that I find make skin glow:
1. Wash my face with the Clarisonic Mia. Use it every night with my favourite cleanser. This little wonder deep cleans, like nothing else on the face of this planet. It is the most clean your face will ever feel.
2. Neostrata 8% Glycloc Toner. Use it 2-3 times per week. Amazing exfoliation and clears up clogged pores.
If anyone ever needs advice, I would be glad to share!

Uh.. my beauty regimen seems so lazy compared to most of you, lol.
Moisturizer with sunscreen. Every. Day. EVERY. DAY.
I swear by Aveeno Moisturizer with SPF 30. I’ve been using it for about five or six years now on a daily basis. I really don’t use anything else.
I also take the ‘reapply sunscreen every hour’ thing to heart when I’m swimming or out in the sun. And I use baby sunscreen. Because I burn like an infant..

I use nothing but CeraVe facial wash and moisturizer. It is like 8 bucks at the drug store. I am a skincare minimalist and it has paid off! Not to sound like a brat, but I consider my skin to be my best feature. I get compliments all the time and everyone asks me what I “do” and which dermatologist I see. I have no fancy secrets. Just plain, gentle, non-drying drug store wash and lotion. Nothing harsh or expensive. I exfoliate once a week with a sugar scrub I make myself. I use Burt’s Bees makeup removing cloths to take off my makeup before I wash my face.

I use mostly Alba products. They have about three different lines, but I find their Sea Mineral products agree the best with my skin. I use some of the Alba Botanica products, too, as well as some of Avalon Organics’ products. Most of these are available at Whole Foods, Target, and Ulta (or Amazon for a slight discount). Most of these products cost between $8 – $20, so a mid-range price point. I like these brands because they work for my skin and are SLS and paraben free. Here’s my usual regimen:
Daily, Morning: Alba Sea Mineral Cleansing Gel, followed by an eye cream (recently ran out and haven’t replaced yet), and Alba Sea Lipids Daily Cream or Alba Botanica Hawaiian Oil-Free Moisturizer (these both moisturize without feeling or looking greasy; both work well under makeup, too).
Daily, Before Bed: Alba Sea Mineral Cleansing Gel (if my face feels oily or dirty), Alba Sea Mineral Cleansing Milk (if my skin feels dry), followed by eye cream, and Avalon Organics Vitamin C Renewal Rejuvenating Oil-Free Moisturizer
Weekly, 1 – 2 Times: Exfoliate with Good Skin Microcrystal Skin Refinisher (available at Kohl’s for $25 or Amazon & eBay). I love this exfoliant. I thought $25 was a little steep, but I’ve been using the same 1.7 oz tube for almost a year and I’m maybe halfway through it.
Monthly: Alba Deep Sea Facial Mask – I would use this product more if I remembered to do so. I usually use it when I take baths, which is not often (or ever) in the summer. It’s a good mask, though, and I like it a lot.
A note on eye creams: In the past I have used Avalon Organics Vitamin C Revitalizing Eye Cream and I liked it; however, I will not be purchasing it again until they put it in a light-proof container. Vitamin C is photosensitive, meaning sunlight breaks it down and negates the beneficial effects. Another eye “cream” I’ve used is Alba Botanica Green Tea Eye Gel. It was all right and worked well under makeup, but I remember being underwhelmed by it. I also tried a tester of Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Eye Cream and I would not recommend it. It gave me dark circles under my eyes, smelled bad, and felt greasy.

I love my Clarisonic. I recently got my partner into it (he’s convinced he has huge pores, which he doesn’t). It is great regardless of the cleanser that you use, which I love about it. I can tell a difference when I don’t use it for several days.

Nivea! Not fancy, I know but it works!

I wash my face in the morning with Spectro wash and moisturize with a SPF moisturizer.
At night I wash with an anti-age nutregena wash and moisturize with the spectro moisturizer.
I put vaseline on my lips at night and use aveno oatmeal overnight hand moisturizer for my hands.
All is done after brushing my teeth and using the mouthwash as well I pre-warm my face with warm-hot water.

Another fan of the Clarisonic Mia!! I bought it when we got engaged and I read somewhere you should start getting facials to prep for the wedding – but I can’t afford a monthly facial so I bought the Mia instead. Amazing!
I also use Cetaphil to wash my face at night (with the Mia), and Olay Regenerist moisturizer. I don’t wash my face in the morning. And drink tons of water – I drink 2-3 liters a day.

I just started using the Arbonne Purifying Cleanser + Toner and FC5 Oil-Absorbing Day Lotion Broad Spectrum SPF 20 Sunscreen that is supposed to be made for oily skin.
I haven’t used the weekly microderm face mask yet. That will be for the weekend.

Paula’s Choice products plus Differin XP. I have acne-prone, combination, very sensitive skin. After years of trying tons of different products, visiting dermatologists, and using 10+ different prescription options (including every type and strength of retinoid out there) I have finally found a combination that works for me.

Creams: Amlactin + Retin A. People regularly comment on my skin.
Hygeine: CeraVe (used its predecessor Cetaphil since the age of 15) + Clarisonic

The Clarisonic absolutely DESTROYED my skin so I recently sold it on Ebay to get some of my money back, haha. I exfoliate my face 1-2 times per week with 100 Percent Pure’s seaweed mask and seaform cleanser, use 100 Percent Pure caffine eye cream and Pai skincare’s lotion and Rosehip oil. My perioral dermatitis (terrible-looking, itchy facial rash caused by sulfates and chemicals found in cosmetics) will flare up if I use anything that is not 100% all natural. I’ve researched the oil-cleansing method which is apparently amazing (but you need high-quality oils and that also requires more research, lol) because it does not strip your face of “good” oils – if used correctly, it also won’t make your face oily or break you out.
